Do any of the following symptoms sound familiar in your life?
- Decreased energy

- Loss of body hair or reduced need for shaving
- Lower motivation and self-confidence

If you have any of these symptoms, do not ignore them. Some could simply be the result of normal aging or other medical conditions, but only your doctor will be able to tell if you have a serious condition. Getting a medical exam to assess your signs and symptoms will let you know if you are suffering from Low-T, which could be causing one of these other conditions:
- A thyroid condition
- Side effects of medications
- Alcoho over-use
- Hypogonadism (occurs when the body’s sex glands produce little or no hormones)
If left untreated, Low Testosterone may lead to are infertility, erectile dysfunction, and osteoporosis. To learn more about how hormone imbalance and how it affects your body, read our Pillar of Hormone Health and how your hormone balance is essential to the 5 Pillars of Health.
